It is only mentioned very briefly. How is this done?
Would he be speaking of tissue culture?
This is the series:
His hypothesis is that sub irrigation farming methods coupled with probiotic techniques can revitalize old tired clones. I believe now he has moved on to tissue culture though.
I don't know if that's true, I can't confirm it either way without some sort of controlled experiement, but I watched his old videos about this and bought myself 8 sub irrigated planter beds. They grow some of the healthiest plants I have ever grown with minimal attention or input. Even on some of the more harder to grow plants I keep, such as Giesel... She demands extra nitrogen, calcium, and magnesium levels when grown normally in pots, but when she's in a sub irrigated bed it's pretty much auto pilot til shes done. The plants never have a yellow leaf on them, and all the plant material is highly flexible "juvenile" material. No hard woodsy growth, ect.
I took in a cutting of Animal Cookies which had some dudding problems and after a few cycles in a SIP she grew like a different plant.
